voting states. if you look at colorado, nevada, then to the midwest. you would have to say in the public polling, the president has a slight advantage. they're all close enough for this to play out on election day. but you mentioned it, and they talked about the storm. incumbency cuts both ways and we may find out tomorrow whether the president's post storm leadership, the commander-in-chief, the use of the bully pulpit has helped him. when we get the numbers tomorrow we might be reminded that he is the incumbent and we have a sluggish economy. we could have another twist. >> does either candidate have the momentum? can anybody say which side has the momentum right now? >> no. if you look nationally, it has been consistent for a week. the race is tied. if you go state by state, in one state you say the president has a bit of a lead. in other states, romney has a bit of a lead or a momentum. in most of these places, the president had the luxury of no primary challenge so he has a better ground organization on paper. more offices, more people. they've had more time and money to spend on th

the state of the race? >> well, i think that you've got about -- i don't buy the michigan nevada pennsylvania wisconsin are still in play. i don't think those outcomes are still in doubt. i think obama will win those four. we're really down to the last seven states and their 94 electoral votes and obama needs 17 out of 94 and romney needs 79 out of 94. when one candidate only needs 18% of the electoral votes in the toss up states and the other 84%, the odds are a lot better for the candidate that needs the 18% and that's president obama. so, i think the popular vote -- i think it's tied. i think we could easily see romney win the popular vote, but the electoral college i still think -- i would put a finger on the scale towards president obama. >> chris cizilla, if president obama wins, how much of an impact do you think that the hurricane and his leadership role, being seen with chris christie, you know, showing up with fema, how much do you think that may have had an impact, because it stopped whatever momentum mitt romney may have been enjoying. >> i would say i think the race
